1. Hello Taylor! Can you tell me a little bit about your artworks that are hanging in Dapper this month?

 Hello! For this collection of artworks I was really drawn to things of simplicity. I think for something to be incredibly strong yet simple is pretty wonderful, and this is what I hope to capture in my illustrations. I am still figuring out what direction I want to take my practice, and so a lot of the work in this collection is the result of experimenting with mediums I am not too familiar with, and playing around with new ideas. I used oil paints for the first time in a few of these artworks, and have also combined pencil, pen, watercolour and ink.

 2.     How did you get into art and where do you study now?

 I have always been a creative person and art for me is my most natural outlet. I’m currently studying Architecture at UTS, which channels my creativity in a different form.

 3.     Are you from the Central Coast and what do you think about Long Jetty?

 I grew up around the coast and still consider it home. I’m really loving what Long Jetty is about – it has a super chill vibe! People are really passionate about what they are creating and putting out into the world, and yet they are so humble. You guys are a force.

 4.     Where can we see your work in the future?

 I will be part of a ten day pop-up exhibition coming up in September. It will be run by Art Pharmacy as part of Sydney Fringe Festival which will be rad!

 5.     Do you have a blog/ tumblr/ Instagram/ contact where people can find you?

 I do! You can take a look at more of my work at taylorconacher.tumblr.com or follow me on Instagram, just look for taylorana.

Dapper Darlings is a vintage clothing store on the Central Coast of NSW selling vintage clothing and locally hand made crafts. Dapper Darlings was born out of the idea that old is beautiful, recycling is fashionable and being an individual is priority. You will find a range of vintage dresses, skirts, blouses, retro knits, mens and womans button up shirts and jackets, shoes, bags, scarves and anything else we uncover in the wonderful world of the old. Every item is hand picked, mended, dyed, altered or just left in all its vintage glory. Some things you just can not improve on! Keep an eye on our Facebook page or follow us on Instagram @dapperdarlings to see whats happening in our world!
